Check their Ecosocialism and the Fight Against Global Warming interview with editor Ian Angus.
Ecosocialism has grown out of two parallel political trends Ã¢â‚¬” the spread of Marxist ideas in the green movement and the spread of ecological ideas in the Marxist left. The result is a set of social and political goals, a growing body of ideas, and a global movement.
As a body of ideas, ecosocialism argues that ecological destruction is not an accidental feature of capitalism, it is built into the systemÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s DNA. The systemÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s insatiable need to increase profits Ã¢â‚¬” whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been called “the ecological tyranny of the bottom line” Ã¢â‚¬” cannot be reformed away.
Incidentally, Ian emailed me and asked if he could use the theme for Polizeros as a template for the relaunch. I said sure, and sent it along, he tweaked it considerably, and the result looks great. I got the theme for free from here, modified it, now Ian has done the same. No money changed hands nor did it need to. Which is kind of a socialist process when you think about it!
